Such an awesome road!
Do you live in the area? I bet that is biking heaven.
When I have been there it has always been for motorcycling and that is one of a couple of places in the US that immediately made me fall in love.
I remember spanking the heck out of a guy on a Road Star Warrior on my DR650 going down that road.
